Londonderry, N.H. — Following Bosch Thermotechnology’s February announcement of the winners of its annual Green Living Awards Contest (GLA), which recognizes contractors/specifiers/builders who install high efficiency Bosch heating and cooling products, the company has selected three winners of its accompanying Children’s Art Contest, which is open to children ages 2-16.


Children’s Art Contest Grand Prize Winner Aniela Edwards of Fort Lauderdale, FL (center) holds her framed winner’s certificate in the company of (left to right) Rich Ouellette, Senior County Director for the Levine/Slaughter Boys & Girls Club of North Lauderdale, FL, which sponsored her entry, Vitor Gregorio, incoming President of Bosch Thermotechnology, art teacher Gregory Johnson of the Levine/Slaughter Boys & Girls Club, and Richard Soper, retiring President of Bosch Thermotechnology.

The GLA Children’s Art Contest encourages children to express creatively, whether through drawing, painting, poetry or essay, respect for the environment and what it means to live in a greener world. Winners are selected for the most original creation based on their specific age group. A grand prize winner is also selected.

Bosch Thermotechnology awards prizes in the form of Visa gift cards and grand prize winner also receives a certificate of achievement from Bosch.

The 2014 GLA Children’s Contest award winners are:

Grand Prize Winner, age group 12-16: Aniela Edwards of Fort Lauderdale, FL for her painting “Through my hands I will nurture and shape a greener earth.”  (Sponsoring organization: The Levine/Slaughter Boy’s & Girl’s Club, North Lauderdale, FL.)

Winner, Age Group 2-6: Yash Magar, Boca Raton, FL for his collage “Go Green.”

Winner, Age Group 7-11: Lars Fosstveit, Mountainville, NY for his drawing

“Live Green, Laugh Green, Love Green.”

“It’s always amazing to see how children respond creatively when asked to

express how they see the environment and their place in it,” commented Richard

Soper, President of Bosch Thermotechnology North America. “The entries we receive each year demonstrate that children are keenly aware of the environment around them and the importance of a healthy environment to their future.”
